Detection of bacterial signal by 16S rRNA polymerase chain reaction in expressed prostatic secretions predicts response to antibiotic therapy in men with chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

Abstract

PURPOSE Some men with chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) have evidence of bacteria in their prostatic fluid (expressed prostatic secretions [EPS]) detected by 16S rRNA techniques. In this study, we correlate presence of bacterial signal with response to therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS EPS and first voided urine (VB1) from 47 men with CPPS were analyzed by… (More)
